I am never quite sure how the photos will post in WordPress.com – Here is a link to my Sky Drive if the photos above do not load: March 2011 Birds
This is the second month I have made a list of birds seen, as encouraged by Kingdom Arrows Tweet and See. I use the Semimonthly Bird Checklist Project for Lincoln Co. checklist to help me, but it does not have a lot of water fowl on it. I am a VERY new birder – so if you see a mistake on my photos or list, please comment.
I received this from our Bird List Leader:
The numbering system in Windows Silverlight is not stable so the
numbers were when I viewed but they change.
3 of 60: Chestnut-backed Chickadee–it has a hint of red on back and
they are more expected in conifers such as the Douglas fir in this
4 of 60: 2 female Buffleheads
15 of 60: Buffleheads
21 of 60: Horned Grebe
22 of 60: Common Loon in breeding plumage
23 of 60: female Hooded Merganser with Buffleheads
24 of 60: “babies” are female Buffleheads
26 of 60: 6 Western Grebes with 1 Brandt’s Cormorant
33 & 34 of 60: Steller’s Jay
35 of 60: I don’t know if Sooty Fox Sparrow but is Fox Sparrow
37 of 60: Downy Woodpecker
38 of 60: Song Sparrow
39 of 60: female Hooded Merganser
40 of 60: not 2 Western Grebes. Photo not clear but I suspect that
they are 2 Horned Grebes
44 & 45 of 60: Pelagic Cormorants
56 & 57 of 60: 1 male Common Merganser with probable female Common Mergansers.
